1.2.13 Review of blood vessels and nerves of the arm and forearm
To end this section, let’s briefly review first the vessels and then the nerves, from the shoulder to the elbow.
Here’s the cephalic vein, and the basilic vein, the antecubital vein, the brachial vein, and the axillary vein. Here’s the axillary artery, the brachial artery, the profunda brachii artery. At the elbow, the radial artery, and the ulnar artery.
Now the nerves: here’s the musculocutaneous nerve, the median nerve, the ulnar nerve, and the radial nerve, with its superficial branch, and its deep branch.
That brings us to the end of this section. In the next section, we’ll move on, to look at what the upper extremity is all about: the hand.
